Ruth Ellis was the last woman to be hanged in Britain in 1955 after being convicted of shooting her lover, David Blakely. The Thrill of Love dramatises this true story, taking a closer look at the women behind the headlines.
A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Ruth meets wealthy, womanising David – a racing driver – with whom she becomes obsessed. She also begins seeing Desmond Cussen, a man driven mad with jealousy by her tempestuous and often violent relationship with David.
Whittington’s play focuses on Ruth’s interior life, as well as her friendship with three women all working the club scene: the dependable club owner, Sylvia, aspiring actor and model, Vickie and charwoman, Doris. These friends provide comfort to her as she battles abusive lovers and a rabid press.
Detective Jack Gale follows her story from the beginning, hoping to piece together her motive for murdering David and, more importantly, whom she might be protecting.
KIPPS – THE NEW HALF A SIXPENCE MUSICAL

Fresh from its West End run starring multi-award winner Charlie Stemp, St Annes Musical Productions are thrilled to be performing 'KIPPS: The new Half A Sixpence musical' at the Lowther Pavilion Theatre this June.
This new stage version of Half A Sixpence, which returns to the H. G. Wells semi-autobiographical novel, “Kipps”, has a stellar creative team - with a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) along with Olivier Award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Disney's Mary Poppins, Wind in the Willows and Betty Blue Eyes) whose revised score includes classics such as Flash, Bang Wallop, She's Too Far Above Me, Money To Burn and Proper Gentleman alongside many brilliantly infectious new numbers.
Arthur Kipps, an orphan, is an over-worked draper’s assistant at Shalford’s Bazaar, Folkestone, at the turn of the last century. He is a charming but ordinary young man who, along with his fellow apprentices, dreams of a better and more fulfilling world, but he likes his fun just like any other, except not quite. When Kipps unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society, it confuses everything he thought he knew about life.
Watching him wrestle with his new identity is his childhood companion and not-quite girlfriend, Ann Pornick, who sees with dismay how Arthur is being made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. She is always there with helpful hints on how Arthur could improve himself and make his life richer and more meaningful, if only he would believe in himself, and listen to her. Both of these young women love Arthur – there is no doubt about that – but which should he listen to?
A toe-tapping extravaganza that will leave you smiling all the way home!
